Outlook email intermittently asks for password

Has anyone else experienced where Outlook pops up and asks for the

user and password when the password and user name is the one that has

been in Outlook FOREVER!!

The problem may be that something breaks regarding the URL for the

outgoing email server. I just don't understand it. It happened today

where I had smtpout.secureserver.net for the outgoing mail server.

This is what I was given a long time ago by my host. I changed it to

the IP address and it worked right away. I then changed it to

mail.myhostname.com (where myhostname is the name I would use as my

URL address).

DNS problem potentially and possibly malware on top of that or antivirus

integration making things not work.

Anyway, you posted in the wrong forum. This one deals exclusively with

BCM problems and is monitored by very few people. Post in

microsoft.public.outlook.general instead where there are far more active

people reading it. :)

When you post in the correct forum, please specify versions of Windows,

Outlook, and antivirus software as well as whether this is Exchange,

POP3, HTTP, Deltasync, or IMAP4 account. Our answers are usually

version-specific.
